Great for kids! We took kids and their grandparents to catch some fish. It's almost too easy and the kids loved it. The staff are very helpful and you rent whatever you need plus they supply the bait. We caught 7 rainbow trout in short order and you pay by the fish which they are completely upfront about before you start. With kids and their short attention spans it works great to get them interested in fishing with early success. Most fish are about 12 inches. Kids had to be coerced to leave and want to return. Easy drive from Denver.

This is such a fun experience for all ages but especially kids Our 4 year old and her grand parents had a ton of fun. We have been 2 times and it is worth the drive from Denver. The staff is VERY friendly and helpful. Be aware you aren't going to save money versus buying fish in the store. But, it's about the experience and getting FRESH trout.
